LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers return home for a three-game weekend series against the Diamondbacks at Dodger Stadium beginning on Friday night. Here is a look at the starting pitchers scheduled for all three games in Los Angeles, which for the first time this season does not include Wade Miley.

Friday, 7:10 p.m. PT (SportsNet LA)

Since allowing seven runs while recording just five outs in Phoenix on May 17, Clayton Kershaw has allowed six runs in 26 innings over his last four starts, with nine strikeouts in each game. Chase Anderson is 5-0 in five starts, one of just three pitchers since 1998 to win his first five major league starts, along with Jered Weaver (seven straight, 2006) and Kazuhisa Ishii (six straight, 2002).

Saturday, 7:10 p.m. PT (SportsNet LA, MLB Network)

Dan Haren has allowed 13 runs and 27 hits in 19 innings to the Diamondbacks this season, and is 2-1. Josh Collmenter has a 4.88 ERA against the National League West this season, and a 2.74 ERA against everyone else.

Sunday, 1:10 p.m. PT (SportsNet LA)

Josh Beckett allowed five runs in four innings in his 2014 season debut on April 9, but has allowed only eight runs in his last six home starts, with 34 strikeouts and 11 walks in 37 innings. Bronson Arroyo had a 9.50 ERA after four starts this season, but was able to shake off the grave dirt to the tune of a 2.71 ERA in his last nine starts, averaging seven innings per start with 38 strikeouts and 11 walks.
